In Great Britain, the BBC airs the program The Greatest Dancer. The judges on its panel have witnessed every type of dancing performance there is. Alesha Dixon is the host of this program, and a strong panel of judges includes Oti Mabuse from Strictly Come Dancing, Matthew Morrison from Glee, and pop singer Cheryl.
A dancing company made up of autistic kids performed during a 2019 audition, demonstrating that the judges are much more than just critics seeking the next big thing.
A group named Autism With Attitude was waiting in the wings to perform during the first season of The Greatest Dancer. Several young men who attend an autism-specific school are a part of the Autism With Attitude group. According to a TV footage, their school has a passionate dance teacher.
These young lads entered the stage with assurance. They performed flawlessly together while showcasing their talent.
They seemed genuinely interested and determined to giving it their all. It was also obvious that they enjoyed spending time together and wanted to impress their parents and professors.
The audience gasped in awe. When people think of someone with autism, they typically do not consider their dancing abilities. These young men displayed quick footwork and a high degree of confidence.
Even the judges were impressed.
The audience gave the men a standing ovation, and they advanced to the next round of the dancing competition. They have a strong chance of continuing to perform in a way that motivates everyone who sees them.
